California Accepting Applications for Specialty Crop Block Grant Technical Review Committee

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is accepting applications for the 2023 Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP) Technical Review Committee (TRC) through September 28, 2022. The committee reviews, evaluates, and makes recommendations to CDFA on proposals submitted for funding to California’s SCBGP. TRC members are responsible for reviewing and providing feedback on six to 15 proposals and attending two meetings, held virtually, to discuss final proposal scoring with fellow TRC members. TRC members gain firsthand insight into the SCBGP selection process and help prioritize SCBGP funding to ensure that it aligns with the needs of the California specialty crop industry.
